    I do enjoy Sixty Minutes even though it's obvious I'm listening to a bunch of liberals spin every segment_

    And I can only listen to NPR in short bursts because I get angry thinking about my wasted tax dollars_

    In other words, I'm probably more diverse and much better informed than you_
    If you say so. I'd think you'd be better at forming coherent arguments if you were actually that diversified.

    Really? You ever study journalism or anyhting closely related to it?

    I happened to study at the International Center for Photography that was started by Robert Capa a photo journalist that was there at D-Day.

    Re: What News Channel is the least biased?

    You know, this subject comes up in one form or another about once a month. They are all biased. They don't report the facts as they are. They sensationalize events. They are frequently the vehicles of government disinformation and misinformation. All "news" networks are produce infotainment that is delivered by "personalities".

    Why watch any of it?

    My wife and I were at a large (obligated) event last year and were seated at a table with a Congressman, a mayor, a city councilman and other social vermin. One of the others was a guy in full tux who looked like a feckin idiot. He posed a lot, which made him look more like an idiot. He was with some woman who simply didn't talk to anyone other than the tuxedoed fop.

    Once the program began we discovered that the woman who was sitting with the dandy was the master of ceremonies. We soon found out that she was a long time "New Anchor" for a local TV station. We were underwhelmed. We had no idea who she was. We never watch TV "news". In truth it didn't appear to me that the local Congressman knew who she was either. LOL!

    Nope, I've pretty much always been on the receiving end of journalism, but I do enjoy it_

    I happened to study at the International Center for Photography that was started by Robert Capa a photo journalist that was there at D-Day.
    That's very impressive, but exactly what does it have to do with this discussion???

    Which do you find tends to cover the news without heavy bias....if any?
    I don't know that bias has been effectively measured, but I know PBS puts out good information. As PBS wasn't an option, I hit npr. But PBS is better.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I double-checked my argument which you believe to be incoherent_

    Every word appeared to be logical, consistent and orderly, which are the qualifications for "coherent"_

    coherent - definition of coherent by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    coherent [kəʊˈhɪərənt]
    adj
    1. capable of logical and consistent speech, thought, etc.
    2. logical; consistent and orderly
    Perhaps the incoherence you thought you detected is something closer to home_

    I would be interested in seeing that. It would have to be within a certian time frame though, say 90 days.
    Then I would be interested in seeing the defenses of, (presumablyFox) the foolish statements by their constituents.
